I have a 2002 nissan sentra ser spec v. my car wont start, im not sure if its a timing issue. i had changed the head gasket and when putting everything back i installed new cams. i pulled a plug out and...

The coils are fired from the OBD box. If you changed the cams, make sure the pickup timing marks on the new cams are the same as on your old cams. The OBD reads the position of the cams from a sensor, which picks up the cam position from the cams themselves. If there is no signal, or a faulty signal from the cam sensor, the OBD will not fire.

My sons ca is a 1990 nissan sentra it was running fine and he stop at a drug store he turned it off and when he come back out about 10 min later it would only crank on turn over it would not start can...

You need air, fuel, and fire to start the car. So, you need to make sure fuel is getting to the engine and you have spark. First, make sure your timing belt is not broke. Make sure the fuel pump is working. Check fuel pump fuse/relay, if it is not. You should hear it when you turn the key for a second or two. If it is working, you need to make sure it gets to the engine. If it gets fuel, check for spark. This includes spark plugs/coils, distributor, dist cap, rotor, sensors. Check the fuel first. Let me know. I will help you.

It seems you have a timing problem. Have the engine timed properly. If that does not work it could be a craked rotor or distributor cap. have all these checked.
